    Paul M. Angell Family Foundation


    The Paul M. Angell Family Foundation makes grants in three priority areas: Conservation, Performing Arts and Social Causes.

    Conservation: The Foundation's Conservation grant making focuses primarily upon issues of ocean conservation. Priorities within Conservation are:

    • Supporting the creation of Marine Protected Areas
    • Encouraging sustainable fisheries management
    • Eliminating illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing
    • Conserving the world's shark and ray species
    • Limiting plastics pollution and other ocean debris
    • Preserving coral species and ecosystems

    Performing Arts: The goal of the Performing Arts program is to support the presentation, perpetuation, and propagation of performing arts events, focusing on classical music and theater. Grantee organizations include professional performers, presenters, (including broadcasters) and educators. We are currently considering grants to the Chicago area, Cleveland, Detroit, and the Mid-Atlantic Region (from Washington, D.C. north to Philadelphia, PA. Please note that we currently do not fund dance or film.

    Social Causes: The goal of the Foundation's grant making in Social Causes is to support efforts to address the root causes of poverty and inequality, particularly in urban areas. Priority will be given to programs that emphasize evidence-based early intervention and prevention approaches. The Foundation seeks to support efforts designed to help alter the life trajectories of socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals and families. Areas of interest include: Early childhood education and parenting; Increasing school achievement and completion (K-12) and post-secondary success for low-income students of color; and Enhancing economic opportunities through quality job training, financial literacy, and building assets. Although not limited exclusively to Chicago, grant making in Social Causes will focus on the Chicago area.


    • General Operating: This is the most flexible type of grant. Funds may be applied in any manner in which the organization sees fit, subject to its mission.
    • Program/Project Grants: These grants are targeted to a specific program or goal. Applicants must submit a program budget and narrative to support their applications.
    • Education: Education grants support programs which disseminate information crucial to the organization's mission. They may include, but are not necessarily limited to: lectures, demonstrations, workshops, guided tours, exhibitions, and distribution of printed or online materials.
